Cardinals' safety Budda Baker plans to play in Week 3 vs. the Lions' but will undergo surgery to repair a UCL tear in his thumb in the coming week. He is expected to miss the teams Week 4 game against the Panthers' following surgery. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact:

It's unclear when Baker suffered the tear but it is the same injury that sidelined Drew Brees for five weeks in 2019. Despite playing in Week 3, Baker will presumably miss the teams Week 4 game before returning in Week 5.
